On the way to Kota Kinabalu - August 20, 2010

By: Arturo Valdez

5:50 AM - Left Kudat channel for the 89 NM sail towards Kota Kinabalu. Wind blowing ENE and hope it will pick up during the day. ETA Kota Kinabalu at 7 to 8 PM. Pastor and Janet travelled by land to set arrangements ahead with Kota Kinabalu Yacht Club.

6:30 PM - Seeking shelter at Kota Billud 25 NM before Kota Kinabalu because of heavy rain and rough seas. We negotiated a total of 69 NM but forced to find shelter because of difficulty in sailing at night in bad weather. I am avoiding also our experience at Pulau Tiguba 2 nights earlier of being mistaken as pirates by Maritime Police due to darkness. We depart at 6 AM again tomorrow. Learned of big welcome at Kota Kinabalu.
